EuroClio, the European Association of History Educators, has recently produced a case study providing insights into usage of online collections for and by educators. In this post, we take a look at some of the key findings.
In summer 2020, as part of our capacity building project, we commissioned independent charity Culture24 to produce a report to help develop a shared understanding of what is happening in our sector to support digital capacity, to consider what terms like ‘digital transformation’ mean in practice for GLAM institutions and to provide a snapshot of digital capacity building initiatives in the sector.
In June 2020, as part of our capacity building project, we launched a series of workshops that called upon our community to bring their perspective, experience and expertise together to identify new paths through - and beyond - the COVID-19 crisis for digital cultural heritage. Here you can explore the findings from these workshops.
In June, Europeana brought together 60 cultural heritage professionals from across Europe for a special series of peer-to-peer workshops on ‘Digital transformation in the time of COVID-19’. In this post, participant Graham Bell reflects on how the GLAM sector can work with online communications channels and explores how the Cultura Trust has adapted to this ‘new normal’.
In July, Europeana held its first ‘Lunch Café’ on the theme of ‘Opening Doors’, encouraging discussion around the re-opening of cultural heritage institutions. In this post, Nathan Mannion and Susan Hazan, who led the Café, reflect on re-opening at their own institutions.
